SHIFSD’s supervised Palm Field Community VSLA group distributes shares today as the year comes to an end. It was a happy event as each member receives his or her just share. A share is an agreed amount paid into the club account by each member on a regular basis.
The Palm Field Community VSLA provides a pool of money from which each member can borrow for a small fee. Some member use their credits to pay school fees or medical bills for their kids. It gives them some degree of financial security and a democratic space in which they feel very free to talk about matters that affect their lives.
